Carpineto Cabernet Sauvignon Toscana IGT Farnito 2008

External Review by Great Wines Direct:

Carpineto was founded in 1967 by Antonio Zaccheo and Giovanni Sacchet and farms 424 hectares of land spread over four estates among Tuscany’s most prestigious appellations. The original aim of the producers - to produce modern, world-class red wine from the top Tuscan appellations has been admirably fulfilled. Pioneers of internationalism of Tuscany, the Farnito Cabernet Sauvignon is a great example of this ethos of action. Carpineto has been named IWSC Italian Wine Producer Of The Year and was the first ever Italian winery ever to win the IWSC International Winemaker Of The Year Trophy. Antonio Zaccheo is now aided by his son Antonio and daughter Francesca. Giovanni Sacchet’s daughter, Caterina, has recently joined the Carpineto winemaking team after finishing her viticulture and oenology degree. Grapes : Cabernet Sauvignon 100% Region : Italy / Tuscany / Toscana IGT Maker : Giovanni Carlo Sacchet Notes : Full, rich with good depth and concentration of fruit with a hint of spice and vanilla on the nose Serve : Serve at room temperature with roast and grilled red meats ABV : 13.5% Suitable for Vegetarians
